Dear Friend,Wisdom of the ages, kind smiling eyes, a bottomless treasure trove of stories, a patient listening ear, inquisitive ways, and a warm embrace. These are what one can expect from a grandparent. They have been there, done that ... they know what's really important in life. They know that life is precious, and each moment a gift not to be wasted. There is so much we can learn from our lolos and lolas. Let's be thankful for them and express our love and appreciation on their special day.
We invite you to share the wonderful greetings you have for your lolos and lolas! At every Papemelroti branch, you can post your messages as part of the store decoration for everyone to see!

The Grandparent Connection Website has a mission: it's to promote the connection between the older and younger generations of family through communication and common ground. Since 2003, this e-newsletter has articles written by kids to their grandfolks to foster deeper understanding between the generations. The site even has suggestions on fun activities grandparents and kids can do together (try the ice cream making session!).
Life Stories Have you ever wondered about your family history? Ever plotted a family tree? It's very interesting to find out about our roots and fun to preserve what we know now. Click here to find out just how important our life stories are as well as how to do it.

Volunteer Opps: Basic Bytes
Basic Bytes will be doing its third run of MSWord tutorial on Sept 2005 at Della Strada Parish. They are continually inviting all volunteers to join us in this project. Teaching guides and activity modules are available for volunteers.
They are also planning to expand the tutorial to cover MSPowerpoint. Tentatively set for October 2005, 10:00 to 12:00 noon every Saturday. Same as MSWord, a teaching guide and an activity module will be provided. This is an answer to the positive feedback/demand of students who finished the MSWord project. They are inviting all of you to join us in this project. Your talents are most welcome.
You can e-mail Basic Bytes at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, or text 0916-7051692 for feedback. Thanks and God Bless. - Myra (c/o www.ivolunteer.ph)
